The Garden of Andersen's Fairytales

Haven indhold.jpg

These days a secret, magical garden is coming to be - walled in, hidden from the outside world behind the Hans Christian Andersen Childhood Home. Andersen didn't have a garden as a child, and where it now begins there was then a wall. Instead he had to let his garden flower in his fairytales. Here the plants have been growing for more than 150 years. Today many of them have grown out of the fairytales into the garden he never had as a child.


The garden, still in its infancy, has been created in a collaboration between the museum and landscape architect Charlotte Skibsted, who, among other things, also has created the romantic garden of Sanderumgaard.


The garden can be visited by paying admission to the museum.
